4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2013 bottle. clear gold body with a medium-sized white head, average retention but thick lacing. pale malt honey biscuit character is strong in the nose, while the aromatic hops are pretty quiet, not that it needs it - musty english ale yeast (with a small touch of diacetyl) is mild and matched to the expressively snappy cracker-snap pale malt, and a mild green rawness and earthiness of noble hops grows as it opens. crisp, smacking texture; medium body; medium-light bitterness; lightly sweet; frothy, round, chewy carbonation. rustic and slightly musty, delicious, quaffable, very old-world, and just clean enough. this and the Native Storm are so surprisingly hearty for being so light. re-rate: BBD 30-09-2013: pungent, musty, nectar-y, fruity, very juicy, musty, sweet approach drying finish... 3.7-->4.0

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle bought at Great Food Hall in Pacific Place, Admiralty.
Translucent golden honey colour; One finger head and long lasting crumpety white foam; Good lacing with fizzy carbonation; Fragrant aroma of grapefruit, molasses, citrus, very light malt, floral and quite sharp grass and hay; Mildly astringent, low sweet taste of grapefruit, lemon, malt, sugar, light orange peels, lemon, lime and sharp grass; Mid to light body, pretty slick palate; Taste profile is dominated by mid to light grapefruit, citrus and lime, wrapped around by mildly astringent hops, balanced by some fairly light molasses; Moderately hopped from start to finish like typical German Pils, with bitterness and lasting astringency to finish; Pretty dry after taste, nicely bitter to mouth.
Comments: This is a powered down version of the excellent Celt Silures, with aroma, taste, mouth feel and hoppiness being lowered to a moderate, accessible level to casual beer drinker, yet without compromising too much of Silures’ freshness and colourful characters. A decent 2nd fiddle if you can’t find the Silures at your local stores. Worth my money.
